The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning is now accepting nominations for the 2013 James H. Korn Scholarship of Teaching and Learning award.

Korn Award for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in recognition of psychology professor emeritus Jim Korn's many contributions to research on teaching and learning.
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) involves asking questions about teaching activities and student learning; answering those questions by assessing student learning and effectiveness of teaching strategies; and publicly sharing results of this inquiry in a setting that invites peer review.
